Although our pets may be loved as a member of the family, their accidents can be frustrating and difficult to clean up. The key to cleaning up dog and cat urine smells on floors is to act quickly and follow the instructions on the products used. There are many enzyme products on the market. However, many pet owners have found the products F.O.N. and P.O.N. to work the best. The dog and cat urine smell removers steps below will work with most any pet enzymatic cleaner, but these products are used as a an example. The steps can be used for removing cat or dog urine from most surfaces such as carpet, laminate, sofas, tile, and linoleum.

Things you will need

F.O.N. (Feline Odor Neutralizer) or

P.O.N. (Puppy Odor Neutralizer)

Paper Towels or Rags


Step 1

Blot the area. Remove as much urine as you can with paper towels or an old rag. Do not try to clean the area with any other products first. Enzyme cleaners will not work as well if the area has been treated with any other soaps or chemical cleaners. You can use water to help remove as much of the mess as possible.

Step 2

The instructions say to spray the area with either F.O.N. or P.O.N. depending on which furry family member created the mess and let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. However, I have found just pouring the cleaner and saturating the spot works much better. A word of caution: this may leave a faded area in carpet, however the pet stain may have already done the damage.

Step 3

Lay down several layers of newspaper. Place something heavy on top of the newspapers. This will remove as much of the liquid as possible. Let this sit for a day or two, until it is almost completely dry. Replace the newspapers as needed.

Step 4

Repeat the dog or cat urine smell remover steps as needed for older urine marks. Older cat smells tend to need more effort and repeated steps to clean up.

F.O.N. and P.O.N. are not commonly available in pet stores. They are sold by several online retailers such as Amazon.

The label does state that “F.O.N. will not stain.” However you may want to test a small area first before applying to a large area.
